Given a loving, nurturing environment, toddlers learn faster than anyone. Dr. Montessori explains it as the unconscious absorbent mind. She meant they not only have the ability to absorb knowledge but also the capability to teach themselves.
Children love to learn, and they are given every opportunity to explore the world around them. When you walk into a Montessori classroom, the first thing you will notice is that everyone is busy and interested in what they are doing.
Integrated studies provide students with unique and age-appropriate materials that help them to become accountable for their use of time, for accuracy in their work and to evaluate their strengths and areas of growth.
